Amazing view of the Pacific on this hike. I will say though the one view there is is really all the hike offers. The lower view in my opinion is better then the high view which is harder to get to.

The hike was really fun and easy to navigate through, even with the foggy weather rolling in towards the end of our hike. My girlfriend and I chose this hike because it was close to Lincoln City and relatively a short hike for us; a great couple's hike. The views of the coast line was awesome until the fog came in with a slight drizzle of rain, so we had to head back. It was a nice little workout to the top and I would recommend this hike to anyone, just plan to check the weather before you go.

WOW. What an amazing hike. I would rate this a more moderate hike. Coming back up was a bit difficult but thats about it. So if you are a bit uncertain about going because it is rated as hard (like I was) do it anyways! The view is soooooo worth it. :)

Once you get to the meadow on the coast make sure you go down to the pine trees to get a nice view of the cove. Such a peaceful place! Going back up to the car is awful and so steep!! Bring lots of water!

Wonderful hike!!! Gets your heart rate pumping once you get to the coast. Nice options to continue going up or to enjoy where you are at. Would definitely do again.

No dogs allowed- they have volunteers that are out and enforce this rule

today was my first trip to cascade head and it was wonderful. as others have said, the views are just beautiful! the trail is very well maintained and that's not surprising as it is a NC project and I didn't go in winter ;) steady but not killer climb, nice breeze, sounds of the Pacific Ocean, wildlife everywhere and plenty of forest to enjoy. I don't hike at the coast much and this was a real treat.

Shaded most of the way except torwards the top. Got very hot in the sun, better to do on a sunny day in the 60°s. Lots of roots on trail, good trail signs for direction.

Even though we went on a foggy day, the views were still great. This hike includes forest, fields and lots of hills. We will do this again on a clear day to see the views that were covered in fog.

Moderate hike, beautiful views of the valley and ocean at top . Return on same trail.

You'll thank me if you go. Climb through forest to see sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, the Salmon River Estuary and the Cascades in the distance.

It was a rainy day, so that may have impacted my rating. The forest was pretty to hike through. Definitely not a hard trail. Steep at the beginning and the end. You could hear the seals which was exciting, but you never could see them even at the point. The waterfall is visible but not impressive. The meadow at the end of the trail is not well maintained.
